Présentation de l'éditeur :

The Old Straight Track was written by Alfred Watkins, a Herefordshire-based antiquarian, businessman and photography pioneer, and first published in 1925. It is the book which introduced the concept of 'ley lines'. Although later adopted by the New Age movement to mean lines of 'earth energies', Watkins' original vision was simply of a system of alignments of natural and man-made features in the landscape, used by our ancient forebears to orient themselves in the world.

Although Watkins' idea has been challenged by archaeologists, The Old Straight Track remains one of the most inspiring books about the British landscape and our relationship with it, and will encourage every reader to be more observant of our countryside and ancient heritage.

This edition includes more than 120 photographs and drawings by Alfred Watkins.

"The delightful account of a quest, which led Watkins through many curious byways both in his native landscape and in the realm of scholarship" - John Michell

This edition is published by Heritage Hunter, publisher of The History & Heritage Handbook, the most comprehensive guide to UK places to visit, plus archives and societies, relating to history and heritage.

Revue de presse :

A remarkable book ... Alfred Watkins [was a] visionary who saw beyond the bounds of his time'. --John Michell

Watkins re-enchanted the English landscape, investing it with fresh depth and detail, prompting new ways of looking and new reasons to walk'. --Robert Macfarlane

'Robert Macfarlane in his introduction to this new edition [...] is respectful, finding new relevance in Watkin's writing. The result is to fold Watkins, the counter-cultural mystic-modernist, into the cultural landscape, laying the track for others to follow'. --tls

Description du livre Little, Brown Book Group, United Kingdom, 1994. Paperback. État : New. 196 x 127 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. First published in 1925 THE OLD STRAIGHT TRACK remains the most important source for the study of ancient tracks or leys that criss-cross the British Isles- a fascinating system which was old when the Romans came to Britain. First in the Herefordshire countryside, and later throughout Britain, Alfred Watkins noticed that beacon hills, mounds, earthworks, moats and old churches built on pagan sites seemed to fall in straight lines. His investigation convinced him that Britain was covered with a vast network of straight tracks, aligned with either the sun or the path of a star. Although traces of this network can be found all over the country, the principles behind the ley system remain a mystery. Are they the legacy of a prehistoric scientific knowledge which is now all but lost? And was their purpose secular or religious?. N° de réf. du libraire AA29780349137070
